This was our first time to Rancho Pinot and it definitely won't be our last! Our waitress, Jillian, was super friendly and efficient, the food was great and the atmosphere cozy and inviting. We're thrilled to have found a new place to dine!

Everything about the meal and service was excellent. However, they overcharged for the pasta dish we ordered. It was an electronically generated itemized bill so it is strange that it occurred. They apologized and corrected it immediately.

Our waiter Fellis was fantastic!! Great food done just right. We are very picky and tend to be fairly hard on restaurants. But, we were completely impressed by everything from the night. Great place to take family. Not kids, but adult family members.

We visit Scottsdale almost yearly from Michigan and always make a point of coming here. Who would think that a strip mall restaurant could have such good food and innovative dishes. We have stopped in at least 4 times and would not miss coming here on our next trip. Great wine offerings and desserts.

We have been going to the restaurant for many years, and found it to be outstanding.
But, (sadly) this year’s experience
Proved to be disappointing.
We waited over 40 minutes for our
Main Course.
The noise level was unacceptable. I had requested a quiet table.

I very much liked my salad!!

The food is excellent. The atmosphere is classy and casual. It is frequented by native Arizonians as well as snow-birds. It is a very classy comfortable place - and very popular. Be sure to make a reservation.

Since we were traveling to Phoenix, a foodie friend highly recommended we go to Rancho Pinot. The waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and gave great recommendations. My wife and I shared the quail appetizer and neither of us were disappointed. It was well prepared and very tasty. For our entrees we had grilled swordfish and a veal chop that was one of the evening’s special. Both were good sized portions and memorable. We finished off the evening with an excellent homemade dessert. Next time in Phoenix we will definitely return.

I got a salad that I did not order. I sent it back as I didn't care for the one that was delivered. When I got the salad I ordered there was only oil on it with no acid. Our birthday guest did not care for the special that night of pate. Our other guest really enjoyed his scallops meal even though it was a very small entre. They did not offer a dessert with a candle for our birthday guest even though we said it was a birthday celebration when we made the reservation. I enjoyed our first visit we had several weeks before but this visit was pricey and sub par food.

Rancho Pinot is our "go to" restaurant when we want to have a casual date night out, or catch up with friends over the perfect dinner. The menu is well designed, with many choices in each category to satisfy everyone's taste. The wine list offers good selections to pair with menu options. The service is always excellent, attentive, but not rushed. But the main attraction is the food! The menu changes on a regular schedule, and it always includes some favorites, something new to try, and of course the desserts are not to be missed!

This was our second time at the restaurant and we brought friends along. Sabrina, our waitress who is also the Manager, is amazing.
The food was delicious, you could hear yourself talk even with every table filled, and the service was top rate.
